, there was a detailed post mortem of the romney campaign in today's "boston globe." romney was reluctant to run and did so at his son's tag's insistence. this story quotes tag as saying he wanted to be president less than anyone i've ever met in my life. aaron, he recently wrote about the optimism within the gop, but does the choice of a reluctant candidate symbolize an identity crisis within the republican party? >> well, i don't know that i know -- i know that tag romney is looking out for his father, but let's be real about this. mitt romney was not the least bit reluctant to run for president and was plotting his second run for the presidency from the very moment that he conceded to john mccain, so let's take that comment from tag with just a little bit of a grain of salt. >> fair enough. erin mcpike from rear clear politics and syndicated columnist bob franken, thank you both. >> thank you. >> still to come, are guns in school really the answer to keeping our children safe? we'll take to you one district where they are doing exactly that. >>> plus, what washington is going to do to keep us from fa

of the election results -- you're asking me to accept mitt romney's tax plan. why would i do that? at another point, the speaker noted his gop majority would also return next year." that doesn't exactly sound like the basis for a deal. your interpretation? >> no, but this is why the president is not moving. but i completely agree with david when he says that the president, in order for these republicans to step out on the ledge -- remember, it's not only tea party republicans. it's been framed, but there are republicans in the house that have been there for 20 years who are against raising taxes. this is the republican dogma. it's been in place for 30-some years since the reagan era. they're against any tax hikes on anyone in any circumstance. so to really bring those republicans over that could stomach it, they need to see real concrete cuts on that side and also some entitlement reform, because that's where the spending has to really change in order to deal with the deficit. but remember, the president has his pressure points, too. you have members on the left in the house, progressives tha

romney lost the election, there would be civil war within the republican party. this is what we are seeing now. what was so weird about the last episode is this caucus was in a room which was virtually like fantasyland. they were arguing over a proposal that made no sense and that was going nowhere. it had -- they are like tearing each other apart over it. this is a party that not only i love your line where you said they weren't able to achieve partisanship. this is a party that is no longer capable of governing. >> right. >> you can't let them be part of the process if they are going to behave like that. >> that's the point. if they can't pass a bill that exempted $999,999 of increases, what can they do? >> i think it saved obama from himself. the deal he was offering to bear, to raise taxes on people making $400,000 was a really bad one, right? now we get to come back to a new congress. you know, what he needs to find is get the house democratic caucus in line and pick up 20 republican votes in the house. 17 republican votes in the house. that's the coalition that is going to
